Relations between age at occupational exposure to ionising radiation and cancer risk.
Sensitivity to carcinogenic effects of radiation increases progressively with age during adult life and, provided the dose is too small to produce many cell deaths, the ratio of leukaemias to solid tumours is no different for radiogenic and idiopathic cancers. Expand
Effects of low doses and low dose rates of external ionizing radiation: cancer mortality among nuclear industry workers in three countries.
Estimates of cancer risk associated with low-dose protracted exposures obtained are compatible with a range of possibilities, from a reduction of risk at low doses, to risks twice those on which current radiation protection recommendations are based. Expand
Mortality through 1990 among white male workers at the Los Alamos National Laboratory: considering exposures to plutonium and external ionizing radiation.
Dose-response relationships for whole-body dose from external ionizing radiation and tritium were observed for cancers of the brain/central nervous system, the esophagus, and Hodgkin's disease, and overall mortality among this cohort is quite low. Expand
Studies of the mortality of A-bomb survivors. 9. Mortality, 1950-1985: Part 3. Noncancer mortality based on the revised doses (DS86).
There seems to be an excess risk from noncancer death at high doses (2 or 3 Gy and over) and a pure quadratic or a linear-threshold model is found to fit better than a simple linear or linear-quadratic model, suggesting a sensitivity for this age group. Expand
A Comparison of PMRs and SMRs as Estimators of Occupational Mortality
Standardized mortality ratios (SMRs) for occupational diseases are confounded by health differences between industrial and general populations. In 109 industrial cohorts largely free of work-relatedExpand

Mortality of employees of the United Kingdom Atomic Energy Authority, 1946-1979.
Despite this being the largest British workforce whose mortality has been reported in relation to low level ionising radiation exposure, even larger populations will need to be followed up over longer periods before narrower ranges of risk estimates can be derived. Expand
sources and effects of ionizing radiation
This annex is aimed at providing a sound basis for conclusions regarding the number of significant radiation accidents that have occurred, the corresponding levels of radiation exposures and numbers of deaths and injuries, and the general trends for various practices, in the context of the Committee's overall evaluations of the levels and effects of exposure to ionizing radiation.
